We are a group of scouts and leaders located near Montvale NJ. We welcome boys from ages 11 to 17 and their parents/guardians to meet with us and join the exciting learning experiences.
We are a family and home-centered program for boys in the first through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years old). Cub Scouting's emphasis is on quality program at the local level, where the boys and families are involved. Fourth and fifth grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos (WE'll BE LOyalScouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts.
Our mission is to educate and inform the community-at-large about how to promote a healthy, safe and substance-free environment that encourages the development of a positive lifestyle for our youth and reduces at-risk teen behavior.
The organization was established 16 years ago with the school districts’ partnership with law enforcement, municipal leaders and residents to unify our prevention efforts and community resources in Hillsdale, River Vale, Montvale, and Woodcliff Lake.
We have maximized our workforce and productivity by uniting the 4 town Municipal Alliances as one Hills/Valley Coalition
